Free participation in young people’s ski camp!

600 children aged between 13 and 14 will enjoy a winter sports week free of charge from 2 to 9 January 2016 in Lenk in the Bernese Oberland. The 600 draw winners will also include 75 Swiss Abroad this year.

600 girls and boys aged 13 and 14 will travel to Lenk in Simmental by special train on 2 January 2016. The ski camp for young people is taking place once again. For the 75th time, Swiss-Ski (the Swiss skiing association) and its partners are sending out invitations to Switzerland’s biggest winter sports camp. To mark the 75th anniversary, 75 places will be awarded to Swiss children abroad in the prize draw. Anyone born in 2001 or 2002 can register for the draw by completing the form on our website. The registration deadline is 15 September 2015.

Anyone wishing to take part in the ski camp for young people (Juskila) should be able to speak at least one of Switzerland’s three national languages (German, French or Italian). The camp places are being awarded through a prize draw, and the winners will attend the camp which includes winter sports lessons, food and accommodation. Parents are responsible for organising and funding the outbound and return journeys. The 75 Swiss Abroad who have won a place will be announced at the end of September.
